18 years experience Pediatric Allergy and Asthma
Psycho therapy: See this link: http://www.Medicalnewstoday.Com/info/asthma/asthma-history.Php. Asthma at that time was thought to be a psychological disease and that asthma patients were depressed and on case of childhood wheeze-a cry for the mother. First rescue-inhaler was not invented until late 1950's. In the mid 1960's anti-inflammatory was being used.
